I would like to deploy the java 8update111 MSI version.
With previous versions, I only had to download and install the Offline installer. Then the MSI package was located in C:\Users\UserName\AppData\LocalLow\Oracle\Java

Now the MSI does not show up anymore.

Is there a way to find/extract the MSI file ?
I can find an MSI file during the installation but it does not work when I copy it and this file is vanished at the end of the install.

Any suggestions please ?

When you find the MSI during the installation, you are on the right track, but you have to also grab all the nearby files.

But you can have the MSI directly - see https://www.java.com/en/download/help/msi_install.xml for more information.
